2021 TMCC Annual Security Report

54 Suspension Without Pay: When the severity of the offense warrants it or when warnings or written reprimands have not been effective, an appointing authority may suspend a classified employee for a period not to exceed 30 calendar days. The director of BCN Human Resources must be consulted when considering this action, which must be reported on a Personnel Action Form (PAF) and NPD-41 specificity of charges. The pre-disciplinary hearing procedure must be followed for permanent employees. Demotion (including reduction of pay within rate range): There is some question as to advisability of using demotions as a disciplinary measure because it sometimes creates additional problems. However, in a particular case this may be the best available disciplinary method and may be considered. The director of BCN Human Resources must be consulted when considering this action, which must be reported on a PAF and NPD-41 specificity of charges. The pre -disciplinary hearing procedure must be followed for permanent employees. Dismissal: This is the severest disciplinary measure that can be taken and should be used only after corrective efforts have proved ineffective or when the offense is so serious that there is no other alternative. The director of BCN Human Resources must be consulted before any formal action is taken, which must comply with the pre-disciplinary hearing procedure. This action must be reported on a PAF and, for permanent employees, on a NPD-41 specificity of charges.
